Mary is from Calgary Alberta where she completed her RYT 200hr Training and taught Yoga in

schools and the downtown community.

 

Learning from a variety of incredible teachers and practicing asana, pranayama and meditation has allowed Mary to live with more compassion and

connection with herself and others.

 

Teaching has always been a part of Mary’s life and she is grateful to have the opportunity to share her knowledge of mindfulness and wellbeing with her

students. It is essential that yoga is accessible to all so props and modifications are encouraged

in her classes.

 

Mary’s classes help you find balance and restoration in your body and mind and are great for all levels of experience. When not teaching you can find Mary surfing, cooking or

hiking. She loves to travel and learn.

Rebekah is a small town girl from the Kootenays who was born and raised in the City of Cranbrook. She moved to Kelowna in 2017 full of a desire for change and personal growth that was met by a community that offered plenty of opportunity for both! Only recently she settled into her new home in Peachland where she is finding herself more content and peaceful than ever.

 

 

She took her 200hr YTT training through the North American School of Yoga Science in Kelowna last year which only deepened her love and connection to the practice.  In fact, this particular training was led by the same instructors that had ignited her true love of yoga when she originally arrived in Kelowna. She found the journey through the understanding of traditional Hatha Yoga as a whole to be life-changing, beautiful, and at times, very intense. Rebekah plans to combine a strong and supported physical asana practice with different styles of Pranayama and meditation practices. She hopes to weave these together to offer a refreshing light-humoured approach to yoga while maintaining a traditional intention and focus. 

 

 

While Rebekah is still new to teaching practice she is dedicated to learning and growing so that she may continue to cultivate her instructing style. She intends to bring forward the true gifts she has felt from her own yoga practice to her students.

AINSLEY BENDER

Haida's first experiences of yoga and meditation were in the living room of her childhood home in Kelowna, practicing with her mom.

 

Throughout the course of Haida's life as a formally trained dancer, artist, and school teacher, yoga has been her meditation in motion; a dynamic and healing way to express herself through movement.


Since her initial 200HR certification in 2012, Haida has completed trainings in vinyasa and mindfulness meditation, as well as with Rainbow Kids Yoga and Feelosophy.
 

Drawing on her background in education, mental health, and neuroscience, she has a special interest in trauma-informed and restorative practice as she studies toward completing her 500HR advanced yoga teacher certification.


In Haida's classes, you can expect fluid, deliberate sequences paired with supportive cues for enhancing body awareness and deepening rest. Haida aims to offer each class as an inclusive and accessible opportunity for you to cultivate your well-being through breath, movement, and relaxation.

HAIDA GAEDE

Having used yoga and mindfulness to manage her own chronic illness, it became clear to Miranda that she could use her years of experience in Psychology to support others on their path in the studio while continuing to heal. She had no idea the value and clarity she would eventually find at the shores of the 8 Limbs of Yoga.

 

On the mat, Miranda offers classes for everyone regardless of ability or shape as she integrates evidence-based techniques and knowledge together with compassionate cuing and touch.

 

Miranda spends the rest of her time trying to catch her Golden Retreiver puppy as they soak up as much outdoor time as possible.
